Dust in Apus

Geoff Smith

This pic was taken at the Astronomical Society of NSW star party in Australia.  It shows a dusty nebula (Sarah's Nebula) in Apus near ic4633. It's pretty faint and I really had to be very aggressive in the processing, so background is quite warty. It obviously cries out for more exposure, which will happen in due course.
Exposure: 70 minutes each of L. R, G and B, all binned 1 x 1.
Telescope: 12.5" Plane Wave CDK
Camera: FLI Proline 16803
Mount: AP 900
Processing: PixInsight.
